Another fantastic and genuine teen portrayal from Chris Higgins - telling you straight!
Caught between family life and school, Gabby's trials never seem to end. If she's not dealing with her outrageously embarrassing mother Posy, or helping out with her troubled brothers at home, she's pursuing school hearthrob, Si, and making enemies of friends. Life seems tough enough ... but then her older-than-average mother announces that she's pregnant and Gabby's world turns upside down.
At first Gabby is determined to have nothing to do with the unexpected arrival. But when the baby arrives it brings with it chaos and Gabby's family start unravelling around her ...
